Many of the more than 200,000 golf fans who packed TPC Scottsdale for Saturday's third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open were looking for a reason to roar. And for the ones surrounding the par-3 16th, only a hole-in-one would do.
They unfortunately were denied this day. But there were definitely more than a few close calls that sent the decibel meter rising, none closer than this shot by Brian Gay.
Charley Hoffman nearly set off bedlam with this shot.
And then there was Anirban Lahiri, who put this tee shot right on target, drawing a huge roar.
Of course, an ace was on everyone's mind, but the crowd also enjoyed Brian Harman's birdie effort just fine.
And what the heck happened here to Webb Simpson? That's highway robbery of the highest sort.
In any case, another highlight-filled day for the sunshine-splashed and well-hydrated Phoenix Open crowd.
